§ 11. Mr. BARNES
asked the Secretary of State for War whether ex-service men 1694 are disqualified for appointment to a temporary commission in the Royal Army Medical Corps if they are in receipt of a disability award?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Sir Laming Worthington-Evans)
The fact that an ex-service man is in receipt of a disability award is not in itself a disqualification for appointment to a temporary commission in the Royal Army Medical Corps, but such cases have naturally to be considered very carefully in view both of the possibility of aggravating the disability and of the danger of the officer's breakdown in the performance of his duties.
